I have removed my child from the school for the 2010-2011 school year because of the school's inabilty to retain teachers and because Lakeview School was housed on the site without parent knowledge or approval. I could not get any answer as to why that happened.

I do not recommend Chewning to any parent! That's just not a school to put any child in. I enrolled my daughter to Chewning and we have had bad experiences!! We were so happy once, she graduated 8th grade!!! Now, she goes to Kastral Heights and we love it

Chewning could be a wonderful shcool if the principal, and staff would treat all childrens the same and stop the sterotyping against the kids. I know there are some bad kids in the schools, and some parents are hard to deal with but don't take it out on the kids, lets try to help the kids.
